Danny Mendick has been a great player for the Chicago White Sox so far.

The Chicago White Sox are seeing Danny Mendick turn into a pretty nice utility player. He can play anywhere on the infield at a high level. He is known for his play on the diamond defensively but his offense has been good to start this season. He is currently hitting .375 with two RBIs and two runs scored. It isn’t a large sample size but it is an encouraging sign.

Mendick didn’t make the Opening Day roster in favor of Yermin Mercedes. If Eloy Jimenez wouldn’t have been hurt, Mendick would have made it over Mercedes which is really weird to think about. Mendick got the call up when Tim Anderson went down with a short injury. He impressed with his play during that time enough to stay when Anderson came back.

His stats are good right now but we know he is truly there to be a defensive replacement. Any offense he contributes will be free money for the White Sox. If the White Sox wanted to add a bat to the mix, Danny Mendick is someone who has improved their trade value so far this season.

There is a good chance that none of these guys get traded but they are all worthy of being sent to another team in order to get something that the team needs. Being on this list is somewhat of a compliment because that means they improved their trade value. Hopefully, the White Sox do whatever they need to do to become a better baseball team whenever it is needed.
